Today the leading provider of identity solutions in the United States named its go-to-market partner for the commercial ID and identity authentication sector.



Boston, MA: MorphoTrust USA, the leading provider of identity solutions in the United States, has named Boston-based mobile identity startup,, its go-to-market partner for the commercial ID and identity authentication sector. MorphoTrust’s parent company, Safran, issued a press release detailing the news of the expanded partnership.
“We are excited by our newly expanded partnership with Confirm. Their strategic approach and deep understanding of the commercial market make Confirm well-positioned to enable new ID authentication use cases for the commercial marketplace that will resonate with consumers.” - Bob Eckel, MorphoTrust USA President & CEO
Last January, Confirm launched a developer-friendly platform to authenticate identity documents using machine learning and computer vision techniques. That caught the attention of MorphoTrust USA in Billerica, MA who manufactures over 200 million of the US identity credentials in circulation. In addition to credential issuance, MorphoTrust provides FBI fingerprinting and facial recognition enrollment centers across the country.



The companies announced an alliance to work together in February of 2016 and now they are doubling down with an expanded line of authentication products for both physical and digital driver licenses. In addition to document authentication, Confirm has bundled MorphoTrust's biometric technologies - which include live facial recognition - into its identity authentication stack which is currently available to developers via API or SDK.
MorphoTrust's solutions offer a variety of ID and consumer authentication technologies that include enhanced security features, deep pattern matching and facial recognition. Confirm's developer-friendly solution authenticates global government-issued documents in a matter of seconds through a novel approach that involves advanced image capture, machine learning and computer vision techniques. The integrated solution requires no subjective manual review and was purpose-built to protect the privacy of personally identifiable information.
 New Call-to-action
Confirm's founder and CEO, Bob Geiman, commented on the partnership:
“There are a wide variety of applications for the commercial sector to use technology that requires authenticating government issued IDs. This type of authentication is critical for any type of high-trust transaction. With MorphoTrust’s best-in-class technology a key component of our engine, we bring a great deal of trusted value to the commercial market.”
